Harry Baker was a friend of mine in high school. I don't remember how I heard that he was a Vietnam casualty but I was in Nam during the time he died and feel a special kinship with this very fine man.
Thank you, Harry, for your sacrifice. I' m sorry you didn't get to live out a full life as I have done. I'll never forget you or the price you paid doing your duty to our country. I'm doing what little I can to keep your memory alive.
God bless you, buddy, and I hope we meet again someday.
Your old high school friend from Mesa,
